Paris Attacks & Freedom = 2015 - Poem by Tom Zart

In their new uniforms the young march off
Not knowing who shall return.
With a proud devotion
They brandish their flag
Leaving loved ones to wonder and yearn.

May we all be buried
By all of our children
Is an ancient tribal prayer.
They're so easy to lose
But so hard to forget
Such a burden for a parent to bear.

The taste of victory
Shall soon be forgotten
But never that which was lost.
For those rows of white headstones
In peaceful green fields
Make it easy to tally the cost.

France has survived
All attempts to destroy
Knowing the cruelty of war.
We who remain
Must help keep her free
For all who can march no more!
